"Waiting On" Wednesday: Today Will Be Different

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Today Will Be Different

By Maria Semple

Publication Date: October 4

From Amazon:

Eleanor knows she's a mess. But today, she will tackle the little things. She will shower and get dressed. She will have her poetry and yoga lessons after dropping off her son, Timby. She won't swear. She will initiate sex with her husband, Joe. But before she can put her modest plan into action, life happens. Today, it turns out, is the day Timby has decided to fake sick to weasel his way into his mother's company. It's also the day Joe has chosen to tell his office, but not Eleanor, that he's on vacation. Just when it seems like things can't go more awry, an encounter with a former colleague produces a graphic memoir whose dramatic tale threatens to reveal a buried family secret. 

What's your "waiting on" pick this week?

This sounds good!! I haven't read anything by this author, but I know Where'd You Go Bernadett? has been popular.

Laura said...

Sounds different and interesting. Hope you enjoy it when you read it. After that synopsis, I might have to read it too. :)

Crystal Fulcher said...

Now that sounds interesting and how a lot of my days seem to go. Well without the dramatic secret at least. LOL. I am adding that to my must-read list. You always find the best books.

Here's my WOW.

Hmm, wondering what the secret is, and why is her husband taking a vacation?

Sounds like an interesting read. I may have to check it out. :)

This is a book I needed, filled with humor both loud and soft, filled with a very flawed woman who struggles through a very traumatic day with the sudden realizations that change her and perhaps lead her on a new path. I loved Where'd You Go Burnadette and I love this one too.
